I'll admit, I had no idea what I was getting into when I opened up the Pacemaker. The functionality and the features of the device are astounding. The Pacemaker Pocket DJ system is a 60 GB portable turntable and mixer that allows you to store your music, beats, and mixes on the internal storage, and spin your music on the go. The Pacemaker features the ability to play two tracks side by side, allowing fading and mixing between the two tracks. Cross fading and mixing is an easy task since you can select any two tracks on the device and have one playing while the other is cued up. Whatever track is active will play through the speakers, while you can have the preview of the cued track playing through the headphones.
It's almost Christmas, which means just about everything goes red for a special edition. If you're going to pick up one festive-themed gadget this year, might we suggest the Redpoint Model A Testa Rossa Racing Red edition - the company's classic audiophile turntable. Built upon a solid aluminum billet base with a silicone-oil-damped composite Teflon platter, the Model A would make the ideal gift for someone who refuses to give up their vinyl.
Since vinyl purists are such, well, purists, it comes as no surprise that they favor different needle cartridges depending on the type of music they're listening to. No problem if you only play, say, jazz, but if you're also partial to some reggae, string quartet and classic ABBA, that's a whole lot of switching and tweaking each time. New York audio pros High Water Sound may have the answer: a modified TW-Acoustic Raven AC turntable with four separate, independent arms and cartridges.
